Ask The Experts—Highbanker legal in CA?; Best place to sell raw gold?
December 2010 by Chris RalphQ: If a high banker is outfitted with a suction hose, is it considered a dredge in CA even if it is sitting on the ground? Also, how do I find the best places to sell raw gold (flour, pickers, nuggets, gold in quartz, etc.)?
• Can you please shed some light on the material I collected...?
While there is no metal detector that will see only gold, there is a device that can reliably distinguish gold from lead, copper, iron or other metals. It is an X-Ray fluorescence tester, sometimes called an XRF gun.
Q: ...A number of scientific studies have been done that concluded our level of dredging is “not” harmful to fish or habitat. I suggest that the Mining Journal list some of these specific studies with brief summaries and conclusions.
